Alex Orr Receives 30 Under 30 Award from Jackson Magazine!
December 2nd, 2014 - EverLast Lighting's VP of Sales, Alexander Orr, recently received one of Jackson Magazine's 30 Under 30 awards this year. "I always have a dozen projects going at the same time - I like to be productive," Orr explained to Linda Hass, Jackson Magazine Editor. As Vice President, Orr oversees and manages the internal sales department, regional managers and dozeons of manufacturer's representatives globally. He also tracks sales trends, dstributes the latest product updates and training information, and develops guidelines and programs to ensure staff and safety.
As if that weren't enough, Orr, 27, also helped faciitate the EverLast Representative Symposium, in which 60 representatives and distributors from all over the U.S. gathered at the Jackson headquarters last year. "I helped present training sessions that familiarized participants with our best practices, new technologies and other strategies we implement. It is especially rewarding being recognized by my elder peers as a young leader in the lighting industry," said Orr, who is on track to receive a master's in business administration from Spring Arbor University in spring of 2016.
"Alexander is a very dynamic and energetic person who is very good at multi-tasking and moving projects forward," commented Joelle Bragg, VP of Administration. "His promotion from East Coast Regional Sales Manager to Vice President earlier this year was well deserved!"
Orr's spirit of involvement also extends to his community, where he volunteers for the Relay for Life and Habitat for Humanity, to name a few causes.
